“Battlefield Baseball,” a 2003 Japanese film directed by Yūdai Yamaguchi, pits Seido High’s baseball team against Gedo High’s zombie players, who win by killing opponents. Reluctant new student Yakyu Jubei joins Seido, armed with a lethal pitch.

The game starts poorly for Seido, but an inspired Jubei returns, aided by a makeshift team. A final showdown with Gedo’s coach leads to unexpected empathy, culminating in a surreal victory as cherry blossoms fall.
